    I worked at Silicon Valley Community Foundation part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The staff is highly competent and smart. Most truly enjoy what they do and care for the mission of fostering philanthropy. The main office is centrally located along the Peninsula/Silicon Valley and each work space is comfortable, modern and clean. Benefits are the best I've received from a nonprofit employer.

    Cons

    Your experience truly depends on your relationship with your supervisor. Promotions are rare but occur if you are willing to go above and beyond your job description AND be your boss' pet. Internal pay equity is extremely off - job postings for new employees post higher salaries than current, longer-term employees. There are also too many levels of management and a pervasive acceptance of a micro-managing style of management. Some processes are in place to maintain the high integrity and professionalism expected from the community foundation but most work-flow processes are frustratingly slow and just foster distrust and fear of making mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to respond to employees' concerns and not side with management as frequently. Fair treatment and employee empowerment can go a long way. Managers need to recognize and support the success of all their reporting employees. Simply announcing completed projects at monthly staff meetings is not enough recognition. Foster a work environment where employees feel comfortable asking for days off and for a raise.
